GLENN BECK PROGRAM
GLENN: Now, before we get to the news of the day, I think the news of the day that everybody is talking about, I think the one story -- Stu, if you were going to say the one story that everybody is talking about, the top of the news cycle, what would it be?
STU: Jeez, I don't know. Election 2008 maybe?
GLENN: Nope, nope.
STU: The surge of Huckabee in Iowa?
STU: Chavez and his control --
GLENN: No, no, no, no, no. Stu none of that?
GLENN: None of that. Brian Jason Landis.
STU: Oh, yeah.
GLENN: Brian Jason Landis. I love this story. This guy was arrested last week in Pennsylvania. He was arrested for running one of the most wide ranging car theft rings the area has ever seen. He had at least six accomplices and up to ten, each assigned a specific task and what they would do is they would bust into cars, they would take the laptops, the cell phones, the GPS devices and then they would sell the stuff all on eBay. He had conservatively cashed about $100,000 in less than a year. At least 500 cars were broken into during that period meaning that Landis was hitting at least one car per day, taking the crap out and putting it on eBay. Police said the motive was drugs but you can't be this dedicated of a criminal without support of the family and, boy, did he have support from his family. Love this story. His girlfriend who, thank God for her sake, was not named in the story, was in line with hundreds of others who were looking to see if any of the recovered stolen items were theirs. She claimed that when police raided their apartment, they inadvertently took some of her personal stuff. So she was there to get it back but her loyalty is astounding and some of the quotes -- and these are actual quotes from the guy who was running the theft ring. These are actual quotes from his girlfriend. Quote: He's a great guy. He was set up.
Okay. So she's defending him and I mean, why not. They've been together for nearly an entire year and he had only been in jail once before, you know, on a gun rap but, quote, he was set up that time, too, end quote.
Now, in her defense of her boyfriend, it seems like what she said won't hold up in court, but you haven't, you know, heard all of the evidence that she has. You've just, you know, he was set up with a gun rap, yeah, yeah, whatever. But here's her evidence that there's no way he was involved. Quote: He was a great boyfriend. He took care of me. He bought me clothes and jewelry. You see this necklace? It didn't come from the dollar store. It came from Wal-Mart, end quote. So immediately you can see this man knows how to treat a woman right. Quote: Any time I would need my nails or my hair done, he would pay for it, she added. I mean, as if you needed more on this, she said, "I know he didn't do this." What's her evidence? Quote: He's on two bowling teams. He's good. He's like 180 average. Well, I'm glad I didn't pass judgment on the guy. I didn't know he was on a bowling team. I'm sorry. I didn't know he was on two bowling teams. So you can see why the police clearly wanted to set this guy up. They wanted to take somebody who had 180 average out of the league. You know what I mean?
But wait, there's even more. Do you see the -- quoting: Do you see those pink rearview mirror dice with the skulls on them in there? Those weren't stolen. He won them for me in one of those crane machines. He's really good at those crane machines, end quote.
Johnny Sutton, if you're listening, I believe you should hire this woman. It's far more convincing. I mean, I'm ready to start a free Brian Jason Landis campaign. I think you should hire this. If she had this kind of evidence on Ramos or Compean, hey. As if you weren't ready to take the cuffs off this guy, those three people who don't see that he was on a bowling team. The girlfriend continued to add to the magic this weekend. She said, "I just can't believe this. We had plans. He talked about getting his barber's license. He cuts his own hair and his dad's. He's really good," end quote. My gosh. I mean, is there anything this guy can't do? He's a 180 bowler, a crane machine expert, a Wal-Mart connoisseur and now a barber as well? I've got to tell you, just when I thought my belief in this country couldn't fall any further, I see something like this and I realize that talent like this being set up by the cops, it's -- damn, these crooked cops.
